|Birth: ||Sep. 6, 1929|
|Death: ||Apr. 13, 2016|
Ross was born in Lockhart, Texas. His mother died when he was a small child and he was raised by his father and grandfather.
After serving in the United States Navy, Ross came to Austin, to establish a career in law enforcement. Twenty four years later, he retired from the Austin Police Department and initiated a second career with the State of Texas Law Enforcement Standards Commission.
His second retirement allowed a third career of travel with his wife, Billye, in their RV, exercising a hobby of photography and seaching for their "roots" in court houses, libraries, and cemeteries throughout the East Coast. Sunsets were his best photographs. Sunrises could have been except they came too early in the mornings for this retiree.
Obituary published in Austin American-Statesman from April 15 to April 17, 2016: SCHULLE, Abner Ross
Ross Schulle, of Austin, passed away on April 13, 2016. He was born in Lockhart, Texas, in 1929, to Herbert and Mary Krueger Schulle. After military service in the US Navy, Ross came to Austin, and served 25 years as an Austin Police Officer. Then, the last 17 years before retirement was in the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. He was a member of the Texas Police Association and served in many offices of that organization. Ross was a member of the Masons, and Ben Hur Shrine, Patrol Unit, Provost Guard Unit, and the Travel Club. After retirement, travel and genealogy were full time hobbies for him and his beloved wife and their companion, Brandy.
A light has gone out in the world. He was preceded in death by his loving wife and best friend, Billye Vanderburg Schulle, and a daughter, Judy Ann Schulle Brace. He is survived by a daughter, Jayne Marie Schulle, 7 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and several close friends.
In life Ross touched many people; he lived life to help others. In lieu of flowers, Ross asked that in his memory you perform a random act of kindness. The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice Austin's Christopher House for their support and kindness, and asks that gifts in his memory be made to support Christopher House.
Graveside services will be held at 2:00 o'clock p.m. on Sunday, April 17th at Austin Memorial Park, 2800 Hancock Drive.

I had the honor of attending many in-service classes taught by Ross in the 70's and 80's while he was employed as an instructor with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education. Ross was a true professional.|
